Based on outcome
based framework this course begins with the basic concepts of spectroscopy
followed by the properties of electromagnetic waves and material analyses using
the spectroscopic tools. Various sources of electromagnetic radiation, laser as
source and the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with matter is emphasized.
The basic instrumentation of spectroscopy is underscored. The concept of spectrum
and their characteristics are highlighted. Basics on UV-Vis spectroscopy are
underlined. The infrared spectroscopy followed by Raman spectroscopy is
highlighted in addition to the NMR spectroscopy. Overall, the course provides fundamental
knowledge on the spectroscopy techniques for material analysis, spectroscopic
instrumentation and their basic working principle that are mainly used in the material
science industry and technology exploration.
